Review scores
AllMusic4/5 stars[3]

The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow stated "Larry Coryell will always be best known for arguably being the first fusion guitarist, but his career has been quite wide-ranging ever since the late '60s. On Shining Hour, he mostly sticks to jazz standards ... Coryell, whose playing works well in this (for him) rare setting although he is not really a boppish improviser".[3]
